Immigrant life

Farren life nuh easy
hear mi when mi seh
if yuh tink yuh caa stan it
stay whe yuh deh

Family always tell yuh
yuh can come an stay wid dem
but if yuh stay more dan two weeks
trust mi, is a big problem

yuh nuh always get work dat yuh want
caas it nuh suh easy fi find
suh yuh haffi tek whe yuh get
just mek up yuh mind

false Pride haffi drap
and sometimes yuh start over
yuh haffi know runnings
and sometimes duh tings under cover

I am not discouraging yuh
caas di world is one big gate
yuh can mek it anyweh
if yuh have yuh head on straight
